Many friends have asked me about the book I wrote 10 years ago, and how my blog got its name. Bottom line, we knew so many people with big, gorgeous homes, who only invited guests to their tables maybe twice a year. So much beauty, potential, and the perfect space for bringing people together. But because of over busyness, or a fear of hosting, or not liking to cook, or quite honestly, not having a good network of friends—they never hosted.

That is how my blog was born! Wanting to help others get over their fears and dive in to hospitality!

We attend a Communion Group on Monday nights, and it’s a very sweet time. We all bring a potluck dish, and we’ve been able to meet some new friends, connect with people in our community (since we are the newbies) and get to know others in our church.

A very sweet girl who is headed to China to teach, shared a precious email to the group:

You all have been so welcoming.
You have shown me real friendship, and hospitality.
You have opened your homes up, invited me to your dinner tables, broken bread with me
The whole year I was coming, I would walk out of your doors and sit in my car and ask the question: Who knew that Communion could be so life changing?!
I love you all and consider you my close friends and family.

Communion is life changing, and sharing a table is impacting, though eating is the simple act of feeding the body. It’s something we so need.

Dining, on the other hand, goes deeper than just putting food into our mouths. It’s more than food, presentation, and taste. It’s about people and what happens around our tables, and it’s good for our souls.

So now if you’re encouraged to make that invite, I’ll help get you started.

  1. I don’t use a slow cooker but use a dutch oven instead. Do you have any thoughts on converting this to the oven – time and temperature? Thanks.

  2. Yum. So simple. I love the name “communion group”. We are meant to commune. We are meant for community, and yet we always seem to be in a rush and don’t take time. Guilty as charged.

  3. I just want to say that you have saved my relationship. I’m not a good spontaneous cook, and really don’t enjoy it so I don’t cook as often as my boyfriend would like me to. He cooks amazing but gets tired of doing it all the time. He can whip a meal up with almost anything in the fridge. I’m not creative like that. Anyway, following your recipes has been a pleasure and easy task for me. I’m super excited to make the Slow Cooker Mirepoix Roast Beef. 

  4. We do not have a Trader Joe’s. How big is a “large container of mirepoix”?
